The 1930s were at time of great strife and oppression as well as a time of great hope. The latest video in Vanity Fair’s Decades Series, “The Decades Series: The 1930s,” focuses on one of the biggest uplifting moments in the ’30s, the 1939 New York World’s Fair. Here’s more about the Barbara Kopple-directed short film:

“The 1939 New York World’s Fair offered a glimpse into a promising future, filled with innovative ideas and inventions. Featuring firsthand interviews from those who were there, Oscar-winning director Barbara Kopple highlights the landmark event in ‘The Decades Series: The 1930s.’ The series honors Vanity Fair’s 100th anniversary with ten of today’s most influential filmmakers celebrating the milestone by creating a short film representing each era of V.F.’s century-old history.”
